General Information
General Information

The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs offers a multidisciplinary master’s program focusing on public and international
affairs. The degree awarded is the Master of Arts (MA) in Public and International Affairs. The program has three fields of concentration:
public policy; international affairs; and development studies. The field of concentration chosen can be added to the transcript if a student
takes all of his elective courses within it. The program, which is only offered on a full-time basis, also offers a coop option.

The program operates within the framework of the General Regulations of the FGPS, which are available on the Website at the following
link:

www.etudesup.uottawa.ca/generalregulations

Admission Requirements
Admission

To gain admission to the MA in Public and International Affairs, applicants must have completed an honours undergraduate degree (or its
equivalent) in the social sciences, in arts, in management, or in law, with at least a 75 per cent (B+) average (calculated in accordance
with the FGPS guidelines). Applicants with degrees in other disciplines may also be considered, depending on the relevance of their
previous degree and experience to the MA in Public and International Affairs.

A basic knowledge of economics is required. There are two ways to meet this requirement. The first is for students to have successfully
completed introductory courses in macroeconomics and microeconomics at the undergraduate level. At the University of Ottawa, this
requirement can be met by taking the courses ECO1102 and ECO1104, or their equivalent. The Faculty of Social Sciences will offer these
courses in the summer to facilitate the completion of this requirement. Equivalent courses from other universities are also accepted.

The second way to meet the economics requirement is to take a remedial course offered by the Graduate School of Public and
International Affairs. Students with a GPA (grade point average) of 80% (A-) or more, but who lack these courses, could still be admitted
toPrinted
the program, on the condition that they take a remedial course in economics offered by the Graduate School of Public 2and
Date: 2010 -09 -30 / 11
International Affairs during their first session. The course, entitled “Economics for Public Management and Policy” (API5100), offers an
intensive survey of the economics and mathematical skills necessary to be adequately prepared for the program ’s core courses in
economics. Completion of this course will also be recommended for students who may need to ensure that they have the necessary basic
skills in mathematical analysis. This remedial course will be in addition to the 45 credits required by the program.

The Second Year


The second year of the program is designed to allow students to acquire deeper knowledge in specific fields of concentration. It requires the
student to complete three sets of requirements: a set of four elective seminars, a capstone seminar, and a research paper.

The specialized seminars are regrouped under three fields of concentration: public policy, international affairs, and development studies.
Each year, the School will offer at least six seminars in each of the fields. Students who take all of their elective courses in a same field of
concentration will be able to have this concentration indicated on their transcript. The graduate studies co-ordinator will assist students in
selecting their specialized seminars.

The elective courses offered under the three fields of concentration are the following:

Concentration 1: Public Policy

API6357 CONFLICT AND HUMAN SECURITY(3cr.)
API6359 SPECIAL TOPICS IN DEVELOPMENT STUDIES(3cr.)

API6399 CAPSTONE SEMINAR(3cr.)

These seminars allow students to apply, in an integrated manner, the knowledge, the theoretical and conceptual tools, and the research
techniques acquired in the program to a specific policy problem, while being exposed to the more practical challenges of making policy
and conducting international affairs.

Each seminar focuses on a specific case or problem of public policy, international affairs or international development and it requires that
students work in teams to prepare a detailed policy brief, offering both rigorous analysis and alternatives for action to address the problem
at hand. At the end of the seminar series, students must present their policy brief to their fellow students, faculty members, and senior
fellows at the School. In their work, students are expected to draw on the knowledge acquired during the program.

Moreover, each seminar is led by a regular faculty member, in conjunction with a practitioner associated with the program, thus
providing students with a better appreciation for the real-life constraints faced by policy-makers, diplomats and development workers.

There are between 5 and 8 capstone seminars per year, covering the three fields of concentration.

API6999 MÉMOIRE / RESEARCH PAPER(6cr.)

Students, under the supervision of a professor, will write a major research paper on a topic in public and international affairs. The paper,
which will be about 1200 words (50 pages) in length, will be graded by two professors: the supervisor and another professor associated
with the program and appointed by the graduate studies co-ordinator. Research papers are graded alpha and the grade (average of both
evaluations) appears on the transcript.

Students will register in the research paper in the summer of their first year and they should normally complete it by the end of the sixth
session.

The Co-op Option


The MA in Public and International Affairs, with the assistance of the University of Ottawa’s co-op office, offers a co-op stream to a
limited number of students. The co-op option allows selected students the opportunity to acquire practical work experience by completing
two one-session work placements in a public, non-profit or private organization operating in the area of public and international affairs.

There will be two options for the co-op stream. Under the first option, the first co-op placement will be in the summer of the first year and
the second work placement will take place over the winter session of the second year. Under the second option, the students will complete
two consecutive work placements over the summer of the first year and the fall of the second year. This option will serve to accommodate
work placements that may require a longer timeframe to provide a more valuable work experience by having students engage in a longer
project within the host organization. In both cases, students who enrol in the co-op stream of the program will obtain twelve credits (six
credits per work placement, including the submission of a co-op report) for their work experience and co-op report; and they will be
exempted from one elective course (three credits) and the capstone seminar (three credits).

Upon completion of their placement, students write a co-op placement report, describing their work experience and reflecting on how the
knowledge and skills acquired in their program of study have been employed during their work placement. These reports are assessed as
satisfactory/non-satisfactory basis by the professor designated as the co-op coordinator.

International Exchanges
The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs encourages students to participate in international exchanges in the second year
of the program. These exchanges are arranged in collaboration with the International Office, which deals with administrative matters and
remains in contact with the students before, during and after their stay abroad.

Duration of Program
Students are expected to fulfill all requirements within two years. The maximum time permitted is four years from the date of initial
registration in the program.
